My wife is Greek, and to celebrate New Years Eve, we went to Dio Deka for dinner, the first sitting. The special sitting for New Years Eve consisted of a 4 course dinner, $99 per person, which can be enhanced if desired. Having been married to a Greek woman for 14 years, I've had quite a sampling of real Greek food.
Our reservations were for 6:30, and we were brought to our table right on time. The first impression was a very nice restaurant, well organized, and it sure smelled good! We had the following: One of the courses was a cold lentil soup... well, not a soup really, it spent a long time in the blender, so there wasn't any texture to the soup at all. . Nothing special about the lentil soup .My wife had a greek salad, it was pretty good, but again, nothing outstanding. The other appetizer we got was a lobster tail drenched in feta cheese. Lobster's have a very mild flavor, but it was completely ruined by having it soak in a strong feta cheese sauce. So, that appetizer was completely ruined, unfortunately. At least the visual presentation was good.
We both got the same main course, the lamb chops. They were excellent, cooked excellent. But, there was nothing that really stood out in the main course other than the lamb chops. I make a mean lamb chop myself. The one thing that stood out was the portion size. The lamb chops were 4 quite large lamb chops, absolutely excellent.
We both got dessert, I had the chocolate cake with a nice smooth interior of chocolate sauce in it.
NOW FOR THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE EVENING: We will never go there again. We were placed right in the middle of the restaurant. Yes, it was loud, but I can handle that. However, the staff was oblivious about a group of 4 Indians that was about 4 tables away. Part of that group was completely smashed. One person kept talking, again in an extremely loud voice, about who was banging who at work, insulting americans, and pretty much made a non-stop yelling tirade about everything. To make matters worse, there were a few people who brought children. I felt so bad for the folks who brought children. Being 4 tables away, my wife and I had a hard time talking to each other, due to this obnoxious group of 4 yelling at each other during the entire dinner service.. Many people kept looking over that way, I tried to make eye contact, hoping that perhaps that would help, but nothing did. There is no way that the staff and management could miss what was going on. The oblivious staff, sadly enough, will keep me from returning to Dio Deka. That is too bad, I would rate the food at about 4 to 4.5, however, due to the lousy experience and oblivious staff, I would rate it at about 2.5 to 3. And, I'm being generous.
